Hi there,

i'd like to copy my Firefox profile from PC1 to a new PC2;

Last time i tried this, i ended up with PC2 having the same "name" as PC1 in "Sync". This caused weird sync issues, as the system thought my PC2 was PC1 as vice versa.

So, is it possible to copy my entire profile with all addons/settings, BUT, make "Sync" recognize it as a NEW pc ?


Thank you in advance :-)

I've spent days, reading the forums and other places on how to fix this issue, and nobody or anyplace has an answer. I've tried every single thing. I've been using firefox for many years, and have built and fixed computers for over 20 years.

This is unreal. I've been given instruction here a couple times, and they don't work. I'm being told, "it works for everybody else" So I'm the only one having this problem. Can somebody that knows how to fix this dam issue with all addons and themes being corrupt?

I'm also using waterfox with no problems at all with addons and themes, I've tried chrome also, and all firefox addons i use and themes work fine. What's the deal?

I have the problem with firefox AND edge, that when I want to log into my router, via 192.168.8.1, I receive message that an error has occurred or that it is not secure.

How do I avoid these messages? I have made rules in my Bitdefender to allow it, but still it does not work. Any suggestions how to be able to log into my router, is welcomed.

Best regards Stones.

This is happening on my Windows PC only. I can access the site on my Firefox browser on IOS.

I was trying to use the sync function on my MacBook Pro. However, the browser does not seem to log in at all. In the top right menu, it still shows the "sign in" button, instead of my email address. (see the attached pictures which I captured from my mac and a virtual machine running Firefox ESR on Debian. Another test on the flatpak version on the vertural machine apears to be normal.

Checks on account activities indicates the login histroy exsits, yet the syncing function remains unavailable.

the browser on the Mac is Version 102.0.1 (64-bit) which apears to be up to date the browser on the virtual machine is Version 91.11.0esr (64-bit)

information for the systems and machines can be found in the pictures attached.

Hi,

I have installed Z-Scaler proxy root CA certificate in Firefox for enabling SSL inspection. It works fine for most websites, but for google.com and a few others I get every day a certificate invalid/not trusted error and I have to restart Firefox to get the error to go away. Any ideas of what I can do to improve this behaviour? Any configuration I missed?

It's very similar issue to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1199797, except that when I restart Firefox it works.

Thanks in advance for your help

Hello there! So, I've just installed Firefox in a notebook I have and now there's a website where I can't see some pictures. https://i.imgur.com/E86dhVB.png There should be a picture there instead of (IMG:link) https://i.imgur.com/7lzrbfU.png There should also be a picture there, behind "Redvirux". Some pictures are shown, though, but most aren't. It's an http website, but it had been working fine on my Windows 8 instalation. Do I need some codecs? Is it a Windows 10 problem?

I cannot seem to reach https://community.esri.com/ via Firefox but can reach it fine with Chrome and Edge.

Firefox says "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to community.esri.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

So I even added the page to list of Exceptions, but still cannot reach site.

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

Thanks in advance

As the title says, ctrl+tab simply doesn't do anything anymore for me. All the other hotkeys (ctrl+t, ctrl+1, etc.) are working normally. I haven't changed any settings or installed any extensions lately. It still doesn't work if I restart into Troubleshoot mode.

I really can't figure out what happened.

Hi, I'm back to an older computer where I already had Firefox installed. I have it installed and synchronized on 3 other computers and it works perfectly there. My main issue is that in the settings, Firefox is supposed to open with all the tabs I had opened when I closed it. It doesn't... It sends me to the home page. Second issue, also unique: I'm using Duck and go as search engine, and I have the same issue: it doesn's save my preferences (when it does on the same computer with Brave browser) Should I uninstall it all and try again? I already applied all the solutions suggested in th online help pages...

Thanks! Best,

I have never seen something like this before and I would like to know what it means and if I should exclude this, etc. So that's why I send you a mail to check it. Like to hear from you and many thanks in advance. Greetz Karin

Hi there,

All the icons on the taskbar when I open up Firefox have disappeared... and I now have the same "world" type symbol for everything. I've Googled and followed instructions, but I'm not seeing what the instructions are telling me to look for, so I can't make the changes.

Can you please send me a step-by-step on how to resolve this. I can't even 'open a page in a new tab'. That function has also disappeared.  ?????

I don't know what could have caused this. Would appreciate your help.

Cheers, Carolyn
